    First rule, no brand smashing. Just post what truck you would own if money were no object, and the truck never needed to pay for itself.

    Personally i would like either a brand spanking new Sterling/Dodge 5500 with a 10' mason dump with a tailgate spreader and a blizzard 8611 or a new GM 3/4 ton reg cab. Duramax/allison, luxury package, with a blizzard/fisher/western 810.

    I would like an 80's GM K30 solid axle truck, single rear wheels, reg cab and lets not forget RUST FREE!!! I would like the truck to have a superlift 3.5" HD lift kit, 33" tires, dual exhaust with headers, CD player and a CB.
    For a plow I would go with a Fisher 8'6" Straight blade, would like a Boss but the Fisher would be easy to modify for the lift.

    Colour Blue, Red or Black would be fine, drivetrain 427ci,TH400,NP205.

    Oh,and bucket seats, back rack with a diamond plated Delta toolbox.

    Now try and kill that truck.:D

    I second the international CXT......they only thing that people who buy one probably don't realize is that it's rated to 25,995 GVWR, so when you hook up any trailer to it you're over the 26,000lbs for a CDL. If you don't have a CDL and you want to tow with it, which anyone who bought one should want to do, than you aren't legal....oh well it's still and awesome truck. Too bad International didn't have the sales for it and discontinued it.

    Not exactly. Only if the trailer is rated 10,001lbs or more. I have a GMC 6500 rated at 25950lbs and I tow my 9990# rated trailer without any issues. Here in CT anyway. Going to try and get my Class A CDL Next week.:help:

    Actually, if the combination of the GVWs of the Truck and Vehicle in tow are over 26000 you need a CDL. Or if the combined actual loaded weight of the truck and vehicle in tow are over 26,000 you need a CDL.

    If the combined GVW of the Truck and Trailer is over 26,000 and the trailer is 10,000lbs GVW or under you need a class B CDL

    If the combined GVW of the Truck and Trailer is over 26,000 and the trailer is 10,001lb GVW or more you need a class A CDL

    I'm not sure if that is the CT standard or not, but it is in Maine which follows the nation wide standard.

    I'd say a 2000-2005 ish Chevy 3/4 ton, extended cab, long bed, 4x4. Add on a 9'2" Boss XVT vee, a nice V-Box spreader, a 60" LED lightbar, dual bins, single ladder rack, 60" LED lightbar.

    Plenty of truck for me to work, push snow, and haul my toys.

    A 2009 Ford F 350 Super Duty Powerstroke with the 6 speed standard tranny, black with chrome, bitchin exhaust, big tires, nice rims, a 3 inch lift and every flashing light I could think of. Add a nice Stainless X-blade and a Stainless V-Box spreader and that thing would be HOT!

    Just to add to my original post. I'd take it white, with some ghost tribal stripes. And a Duramax with bitchin' stacks just behind the cab would be SWEET

    That is the "grey area" I have spoke to DMV on multiple occations. Even after being pulled over. as long as the trailer is 10,000 or less you are OK

    Why would you put a meyer on it? just having the pump on it kills the truck

    I had to go back and look at the Maine Commercial Drivers license manual....but you're right..I remembered it the other way..my fault...Check out page 8 of this manual, there is a easy flow chart that spells it all out. I would think CT has something like this on line as well.
